In the summer of 2008 the annual E3 games show was held. This show proved to be one of the least interesting in years. No new consoles were announced nor were any major new games announced from any of the well-known franchises.
In particular Nintendo’s presentation lacked anything to produce gamers excited. Their best effort included Wii Music, which includes since been released with poor sales and unfavourable reviews. gta 5 download The only real item that really caused excitement was the brief but fairly shocking announcement that GTA: Chinatown Wars could be released on the DS.
The announcement really came as a surprise since GTA is best noted for its adult content as the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi console are noted for their family friendly games.
Fans of the series feared that GTA: Chinatown Wars DS might have its content toned down to suit in better with the sort of game typically found on the console. GTA developers Rockstar have stated that they’d not be comfortable carrying this out and that Nintendo never asked them to tone the information down. Toning the information down to anything that would make the game ideal for a 12+ age rating would leave almost no content in GTA: Chinatown Wars.
Themes contained in the series include, drugs use and dealing, murder (in some cases just for fun) and prostitution. The majority are surprised that Nintendo are allowing such content to be released on their console, but additional games players are very happy to finally see some mature content on the portable console.
The brand new Grand Theft Auto game is sure to gain a top amount of sales after the success of the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions of the series. If GTA: Chinatown Wars DS marks the start of a more open-minded view from Nintendo on adult games or whether could it be is a one off remains to be seen.
